Bottom line is if there was no confrontation the show would suck!
Thought the same thing when I read that......Bro!
Finebaum is a marketing genius whether you like him or not. Panders to most delusional desperate fanbase in the country, and he leads them into making fools of themselves.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
If it were pure entertainment, he would attack the news of the day no matter which team was involved. He doesn't do that. Paige, he says nothing there, move along. t-town incident, nothing there, move along. When has he done that about AU?
I can show you a pick of him in bammer's locker room decked out in bammer gear, but for the life of me, I can't find the same for him in AU gear.

His show is hilarious. All the Alabama callers think he his a bama supporter but it is just the opposite. He definatley plays to the crowd. I think its funny that he is a Tennessee grad and always talks bad about them. Good stuff.

Color me unimpressed no matter what that man ever does to gain our admiration. Whatever it is I wouldn't be able to believe it is not fake, like everything he does.
I'm not sure if it's been a change in the direction of the program, or a change in PF, or just a change in how closely I listen to the subtle nuances of what's being said...but in recent weeks, Paul has come down HARD on several big bama callers. He traps them with the same questions as he's done in the past to some of the delusional Auburn fans that have called in.
If you don't want to listen, then don't listen...but the pretentious attitudes toward those of us who do are unwarranted.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
Well, for the PF minions out there....you have the right to be "entertained", so enjoy that. ...
I simply do not have the desire to hear callers to his show with sub 80 iq's and the truly handicapped ( yes it happened ) mildly retarded people get insulted. All so PF can make money? No thanks. : )
When I listen to sports radio I want to be informed, but most of all I want to learn. I want to grow my wisdom, and thier are many sports radio shows with less cowbell, and more intelligent information interchange.
It's just an opinion.
That is all. ...

All clearly within your rights. Me, however, I spend too much time every day innundated with problems and stressors from both work and family. When 3PM rolls around I love tuning in to FBomb and just laughing at the people who are worse off than me.
I admit that I am guilty of listening to the show, but I do not take to seriously. I listen for entertainment (embarrassing to admit) and I enjoy some of his invited guests on the show.
I'd have to disagree with you there. I detoxed from Finebaum close to five years ago. Now I listen to College Football Playbook with Jack Arute on XM Radio. He has great guests and last year Eddie George was his sidekick. The only time it gets close to confrontational is when Jack has to remind a bammer to behave himself, "This isn't the Paul Finebaum Show."
He's a player - period. Entertainment? Sure, but we've had to be pulled back from each other on this board by PM and staff lest we degenerate into something akin to PF 'entertainment.'
The kicker for me was his continuing the thread one afternoon of all the sub-60 IQ bammers calling in saying the Auburn Tigerettes were university-paid whores. Remember this, about the same time as Updike became famous? He had a great time 'entertaining' his audience!
As the father of two daughters, I thought about these girls that were being slandered, and their parents. That was the last time I listened - no more PF for me. I never degraded myself to watch Springer; I don't need to stoop to that level listening to a 'sports' radio show.
Thanks for the review of his presentation last night, but it just reinforces in my mind his capability to read his audience and smooch their.
My Dad gave me some pretty good advise while he was alive but the one piece of advise he gave me that has always stood out and that I know to be true is: "Son, don't ever pick up a rattlesnake because he will bite you". Scumbag is a rattlesnake of the worse kind. He uses people to make himself successful and he will the bite whoever picks him up. A real human being will never use people and belittle them even though they may not have a clue what they are talking about. Scumbag thrives on belittling those who call his show who disagree with him.
